While restoration of The Old Post will continue for many years, renovations to the upper level are now complete. The majority of renovations were funded with private capital, and an estimated $17,500 was needed to support the restoration of the original clock, bell and tower.
We are grateful for the support of community members, residents, local businesses and organizations in helping us achieve our fundraising goal and bringing this important community landmark back to life.
